Zimbabwean boxers will rue the country’s pull out of the Commonwealth as they will miss shining in the UK Friday Fight Night set for the 10th of June.

Ironically one of the renowned local boxing trainer, Clyde Musonda will take a Malawian boxer, Anisha Bashee to the high profile boxing bonanza.

Musonda said local boxers will continue to be on the sidelines for a tournament that is set to open vast opportunities for the sport that is currently on a recovery path as it is a preserve of countries under the Commonwealth umbrella.

Basheel is the reigning African champion and an ABU super light weight title holder.

Last year, she went to Kenya under the tutelage of Musonda and managed to win the African championship.
